So, when I posted new benchmarks about intercontinental synchronous replication performance, I kinda was not sure if that 6000 km disaster recovery scenario was not blown out of proportions. Honestly I didn't really believe that the whole EC2 availability zone can fail just like that, without major nuclear conflict. And guess what? This is exactly what happened — one of the EC2 availability zones that was used in my benchmarking did exactly that.
Too bad it happened after MySQL User Conference, otherwise people would not be skipping our presentation.
